Also, didn't realize 10-run rule applies during tournament games.

Re: 2019 AAC Baseball Tourney Thread

ECU up 9-1 over Houston, bottom of the sixth. Looks like Houston is done. I do question ECU choosing to not pitch Jake Agnos yesterday and hold him for Game 2. Now he won't be able to pitch again, whereas Roper may be able to give us a few innings if we make it to Sunday.

They're also throwing a lot harder. So we'll have to agree to disagree. The kid deserves credit and nothing should take away from that.

Re: 2019 AAC Baseball Tourney Thread

Roper is a strikeout pitcher, so he's always going to have a higher pitch count. But the days of pitchers being super efficient are gone. I remember back in the 70s, a pitcher for the San Diego Padres named Randy Jones. Wasn't a hard thrower, but super efficient. He threw lots of ground balls, not m...

Re: 2019 AAC Baseball Tourney Thread

Do we ask providence to shine on us a bit more and pull for Houston this afternoon? Would be great to see ECU gone. Sure would like to see both teams have to go to pen a lot and waste up their arms on a Wed, when they might still have to play on Fri, two on Sat, and a game on Sun. Six games in 5 days.

Sehic announced he'll be playing for the Bosnian national team. So he's gone. But there is one more guy that Hunter has, I think. Haven't seen it announced yet, but FearTheWave was looking into it during the game last night.

Re: 2019 AAC Baseball Tourney Thread

I must admit, with the ball jumping out like it was and the score 5-2 after only two innings, I'm shocked that there was no scoring the rest of the game. Heroic job by Roper. He knew it could very well be his last appearance, and he gave us everything. Gotta be proud of that performance.

They just mentioned that the first game tomorrow is at 3pm EDT, and that is Houston vs ECU. So we're good regardless. Still hope we can not have to play until Thursday.

Re: 2019 AAC Baseball Tourney Thread

If it keeps going this way. I think we were supposed to start at 7:30pm, but you have to assume 30 minutes after this game, and if this game lasts 3 1/2 hours that would mean at least 8:30 if not later. This is the downside to playing the last game on the first day. If you lose, you are playing late...

Both of those are just preview links. Do we have a live link?

No problem. I found it on Facebook.

UConn beats Houston in Game 1 with a run in the bottom of the ninth, 4-3.

ECU 1-1 vs Wichita St after 3.

UCF has to be excited to get in a bracket where the second best team has a #97 RPI. They're probably counting on being in the finals this weekend.

Nic Thomas making a step down to play at Tulane. Tulane finished with an RPI of 292.

Re: Houston Series-Today's DH now to start at 4

Maybe we just need to go back to the old days. Let the starting pitcher throw 9 innings no matter what. Can't do any worse than the bullpen. Once again, a 7-7 game, bottom of the 8th, and the pen gives up 5 runs. 12-7 Htn, going to the 9th.
